Divorce Engagements

With the number of divorces growing each year, CPAs have become more and more involved in the divorce process.  MES can assist in this field in two ways.  As litigation support, MES will work with attorneys in spousal and child support negotiations, determining financial net worth.  In litigation, MES will work with both client and attorney throughout the divorce settlement.  Alternatively, MES provides traditional tax services to divorced or divorcing clients.  Here, MES will determine the tax basis of property, the tax treatment of child or spousal support payments, and aid with other tax-related issues.
